Episode #810: Mélange
First Broadcast: 10/15/18
After I spend a few moments trying to remember why "Camille Was No Lady," we delve into the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, the strongest hurricane to ever make landfall on the Florida panhandle, and, by one measurement, the third-strongest hurricane to hit the United States ever. Is this the latest sign that anthropogenic climate change is making conditions more favorable for stronger hurricanes, and more of them? Is this what we have to look forward to when the climate becomes irreversibly changed 12 years from now, if the latest U.N. forecasts are accurate? Will I eventually become a climate refugee within my own state? Will Trump or the Republicans do anything to prevent this catastrophe? Can the Democrats flip the House and the Senate this November so that they can finally put a stop to at least some of Trump's egregious behavior? "It's a possibility!"
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
